8-Year-Old Girl Goes Viral For Spot-On Impression Of Mom Working From Home

Many firmly believe in the saying, "like mother, like daughter," which essentially means that daughters take after their moms.

While this may not be the case for all, it's certainly the case for one 8-year-old girl who was featured in a viral video doing a very accurate impression of her mom working from home during the pandemic.

When it comes to this level of attention to detail, there's hardly any denying that children pay attention to pretty much everything their parents do.

When the pandemic began, the kids started hybrid learning, which means Colleen was at home working with her sons, 10-year-old Luke and 6-year-old Declan and her daughter Adelle there as well.

As a busy regional vice president of SAP SuccessFactors, Colleen has a hectic day of both professionalism and mom duties to manage.

"I'm on video and I work in sales so I'm talking to customers a lot," Collen told GMA. "I think the challenge for me is I'm presenting on PowerPoint and the kids are like, 'Can you get me an [ice pop]?'"

Her kids have even gotten a little creative when they need to get their mom's attention during the work day.

"They'll pass notes under the door ," Colleen explained. "It's the day-to-day stuff that happens."

Undoubtedly, the pandemic has been a trying time for many. This includes parents who are suddenly having to support kids through virtual learning while managing their professional lives from home.

Although Colleen told GMA her husband is also very supportive, he's now gone back to working out of the home, and it's up to her to keep their brood in line during the day.

In the comments, many people expressed their amusement at little Adelle's impression, while also saying they too can relate.

"I have 4 children between 17 months old and 11 years old...the finger snapping really got me, I do the same thing to my kids," one person wrote. "I think it is comforting for people to see that they are not the only ones living life this way over the past year."
